Thank you all for being willing to sign a check to our country that was for up-to-and-including your life to protect the freedoms and wonderful way of life we enjoy here in America. I thank God for your willingness to protect and defend and I also thank God for His protection over all of you when you were in harms way.
**Update: My beloved Uncle Floyd finished his final pre-flight check list and took off on his final flight December 1, 2014 at 4:55 PM. At 97, he lived a long, full life free from most illnesses. He departed with his beloved wife, son and his wife, and his grandchildren at his side. As he did with everything in his life, he left us with grace and dignity. He will be missed by all who loved him so much.**

I got home Wednesday night from the most fabulous retreat with my local guild. Nineteen ladies spent Sunday through Wednesday morning stitching up a storm at the Palouse Divide Lodge. The lodge is gorgeous

Where did October go?? I blinked and it's November! I am linking up with Sew Bitter Sweet Designs - doing this really makes me get at least one of my quilts finished every month...well, at least I try! For November, I want to quilt, bind and label the quilt I made out of the blocks I had folks sign at my daughter's wedding in August. I made too many of the blocks when I was making her wedding quilt, so I ironed freezer paper to the back of the blocks, taped a matting frame around them (to keep my 1/4" for sewing) and voile, I had her autograph album all ready!
